The LCA has arrived with fully imported parts … me think raffle jet is more home grown than lca
At least it used Indian paint from a foreign company tech
Spectra is considered one of the world's best EW suite not because of its hardware but because of its superior software optimization and algorithmsJamming pods that DRDO has developed for LCA MK1A and SU-30 MKI are based on GaN T/R modules. Confirmed by a DRDO scientist @3:27:
We have achieved something which even French do not have. Our Rafale's SPECTRA still has GaA jamming, whilst our LCA Mk1A will have GaN based HBJ pods/EW suite from its first model next year. These ASPJ/HBJ pods we've developed for LCA-Mk-1A & Su-30MKI are both capable of transmitting and receiving, thus consisting of both TX and RX antennas.
This configuration would allow both the fighters to do cross-eye jamming much effectively, thereby deceiving the enemy radar by creating false targets.
MKI is already a very powerful jet, just imagine the kind of jamming power at its disposal with GaN EW suite. It will have power to make even AESA LPI radars and AESA missile seekers totally ineffective like SPECTRA

Supposed to be as good as advertised. Issues seen in the initial version have been fixed as per HAL. That is a cause of worry. Assurances from HAL.If it’s good enough as advertised

Only issue is it’s size that would govern it’s payload and range. That’s where bigger brother MK II would come in.
Come Feb 24, I would be a worried Indian on a Paksiatni forum. HAL has our a##es in line here.
Doesn’t appear to be a possibility in the near future. HAL and DRDO accountability has risen under intense scrutiny. If it improves further then any ISRO requirement can be met by these.Do you think ISRO might ever get into aviation research like NASA
Just hard facts ….
Some how when ever there is trouble lca is never around
